We are currently looking for a highly enthusiastic Senior Backend Engineer in Copenhagen or remote to join one of our cross-functional product teams. The team's mission is to attribute and serve downstream actions to traffic. We're a data-focused, backend-only team and are therefore looking for someone with experience building production-ready public APIs and experience or interest in working with ETL processes. This is an excellent opportunity to join a new team and take part in defining the team's journey. We are keen on someone who is excited about team growth and who is highly collaborative.
It is crucial for our new team members to be willing to, and enjoy, working with all parts of the development cycle, and with all our cross-functional roles, spanning from engineering to product management, data and design. While all team members have their speciality, we are adamant that we deliver software as a team effort. As such, some of the keywords we are looking for include: Being product-minded, mentoring, nurturing empathy and a no-blame culture, and being curious towards new technologies and technical challenges.
You will join a company with roots and heart in music. We’re a team of 120+ developers, engineers, product managers, and more, drawn from every corner of the globe. The common denominator?
Music - we live and breathe the stuff.
As a Senior Backend Engineer, you will quickly gain a large amount of experience across multiple of our systems, being able to plan and reliably deliver complex tasks impacting multiple systems. You will support and lead the technical direction of your product team and will communicate future plans and directions to technical and non-technical people.
Provide technical leadership in designing, building, delivering, operating and maintaining services that are highly reliable, robust and scalable using modern, proven tools and technologies.
Work across the entire team to turn ideas and business requirements into working products, while balancing technical trade-offs and addressing technical debt.
Troubleshoot technical challenges in software designs and production incidents.
Drive improvements on aspects such as test automation, code quality, and performance and cost-efficiency.
Act as a mentor for other team members, showing them the way to be more productive, effective and efficient.
Abilities and Skills:

Experience building and maintaining internal/public-facing APIs at a large scale.
Exposure to, or interest in working with data at scale, including technologies such as Cassandra, MySQL, Microsoft SQL, Apache Druid, Airflow, ETL pipelines and more.

Prior experience in a fast-paced, high-growth company and are comfortable with putting systems in place and adjusting and adapting when needed.
We’re a passionate team of music techies on a mission to make music consumption easier for fans, labels, and artists. The music industry is transforming constantly, the market is fragmented and split across many different platforms and services.
Physical sales are going down. Legal downloads and in particular streaming are gaining momentum.
The transformation will continue and the years to come will be very interesting. We want to contribute to the transformation by bringing music and fans closer. Not inside music services, but outside where fans and artists engage. Our approach is to index digital music across music services and provide smart links that route fans directly to the music regardless of their location or which player or platform they use.
It’s complex. We make it simple.
